Desmond Bishop to attend ‘Hollywood Boot Camp’

Posted by Mike Spofford on February 27, 2013 – 4:13 pm

Desmond BishopPackers LB Desmond Bishop is among 22 current and former NFL players who will participate in the second annual “NFL Pro Hollywood Boot Camp” at Universal Studios in California.

The four-day program runs from March 11-15 and will cover a wide range of topics in the movie industry, including screen writing, directing, producing and film financing.

Among the industry executives leading the camp will be Legendary Pictures partner/producer Thomas Tull (The Dark Knight, Inception, We Are Marshall), director/producer Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) and writer/actor/director Robert Townsend (The Five Heartbeats, Hollywood Shuffle).

Former Packers RB Ahman Green participated in the inaugural Hollywood Boot Camp last year. Former Packers FB Brandon Miree, who played for Green Bay only one season (2006), is also scheduled to attend this year.

    I would like to see Desmond Bishop put his time to better use. He needs to get healthy and get ready for the upcoming season . Not saying that there is not life outside of football. Just that a for a player to comeback from a season ending injury , he needs to focus on getting back in the game . The rest is window dressing .

    Yes, after a season ending injury you would expect DB to stay in tune getting healthy rather attend a celebrity boot camp!
    Hopefully, he does injury himself again prior to the 2013 season.

    Rusty, come on now, spending 4 days learning about what to do outside of football is going to in no way affect his recovery or affect him being ready for the season, which is 4 months away.

    A.J. Hawk should go with him and stay in Hollywood.

    What possible focus does he need to recover? The body heals at it’s own pace and 4 days rest is hardly going to hurt him.

    Stop the nonsense! He’s doing what he wants to do, and I’m sure he’ll be ready for training camp.

    Bishop is an aspiring writer, specifically a screen writer. What do you do in your spare time, Rusty?

    Why are you beating on A.J. Hawk?? He had one of the best seasons ever. Can you do better? Didn’t think so, so shut up!!

    Would be nice to see Bishop act like a pro-bowl linebacker this season.

    Right on Darrell. Desmond will be back & so will the Pack!

    Hope he can play at a high level next season. It would be one less hole for the Packers to fill.

    Rusty Draper says “Next please, too Australian,” in reference to drafting Alabama’s Jesse Williams with the first pick. This guy has some strange opinions.

    I can’t believe people want to micro manage what Desmond Bishop does with his off time. COME ON MAN!

    Bish will be okay and the front 7 for pack will be better. He in my opinion was the big hurt spot on defense up front. Every really solid defense has that one nasty person that brings the hurt and 55 is it. He gives the help that Clay really needs. Dude flat out goes beast mode on run game. Does anybody remember Mendenhall fumbling in superbowl it was 55 with the hit and 52 with recovery. You always have to have that one nasty person on defense to set the tone for the team and we missed that last year.

    52 had the hit and 55 had the recovery. come on man….

    Seriously people let him have his off-season. None of you would truly care about him doing this if he hadn’t been hurt.

    Glad to see a football player thinking about life after football. Its only a 4 day event, it is not going to affect his play this season. With the majority of pro-athletes going broke after their playing careers are over, its good to see someone planning ahead.
